Congratulations to Area E11 Director Mary Thomas-Miller and Club Extension Chair for Rio Grande Valley, Blanca Kelley for successfully supporting the chartering of another new club in District 55!
S.H.I.E.L.D. Toastmasters is located in Harlingen, and is a closed club for the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which enforces federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety. S.H.I.E.L.D stands for "Service, Honor, Integrity, Excellence, Leadership and Duty" which was voted on by the membership and was one of several names submitted by members as part of a club naming contest.
S.H.I.E.L.D. Toastmasters is now showing on the Toastmasters International dashboard with an official charter date of 2/10/17.
